Thread: Keyboard Rudder Control Problem on FSX

  1. Default Keyboard Rudder Control Problem on FSX

    Hi I'm new to FSX and I'm still using the keyboard to control. I know that left rudder is 0 on the number pad and right is Enter. Problem is that 0 on my number pad doesn't give me left rudder. Instead of left rudder it brings up the cockpit view. I tried to recalibrate the keyboard controls, and FSX recognizes my 0 key as the right key. So I'm stumped. Anyone else had this problem or know a solution? I need a left rudder control thanks!

    Do the rest of the keyboard's "control surface" commands work properly? Default plane? Control Axis keyboard Rudder sensitivity?...Don

    Thanks for the reply. As far as I know the other keys work correctly. Though I'm a total newbie, and I don't know nearly all of the flight controls. the other keys on the number pad to the right (1-9) control different views, which I think may be wrong, since someone said that the number 5 on the keypad should level your rudders out, but my number 5 gives me a view of the rear interior of the plane. Very confusing. My arrow keys work correctly and my F1-F4 keys are where they should be. It just seems that some of the keys are off.

    For the "Keypad" to work for your control surfaces turn "Numlock" Off.

    In the file library is a *.pdf chart for FSX default commands. "FSX Keyboard Commands", fsxkypml.zip
    "FSX Default Keyboard Assignments", kba-dcbv1.zip, opens with your browser(*.html) and includes a list of "unused" keys to help with customizing your assignments...Don

    Everything's working well now Don thanks. I was under the assumption that with the number lock off the number keys wouldn't work! Thanks again!
